And don't forget to see the things she makes (but doesn't necessarily sell), complete with photos taken during various stages of construction.  If her leather jackets ever hit the online store, my bank account is in trouble.  Instead, maybe she'll see my blog and say, You know, I would love to show you how to make beautiful leather goods.

Jusqu'à la prochaine, bisous bisous.
